David Madison Cawthorn (born August 1, 1995 (age 28)) is a Republican former U.S. Representative from North Carolina's 11th congressional district, elected in the 2020 elections to replace Mark Meadows, who resigned in May to become the White House Chief of Staff to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Cawthorn is the most inspirational congressman, both as its youngest and most courageous member. The Establishment began to fear his strongly independent voice and went all-out to defeat him with a state senator who can be controlled. Cawthorn then narrowly lost reelection in the redistricted GOP primary in May 2022, by margin of only 33.4% to 31.9% (only about 1300 votes, less than the number of doubtful mail-in ballots).[1] An unusual multi-million-dollar campaign of smears and RINO accusations were made to defeat Cawthorn, some of it as retaliation against his spot-on criticism of the corrupt regime in Ukraine for which RINOs have looted Americans in excess of $50 billion. President Trump urged voters to ignore the personal smears against the young congressman's youthful indiscretions, calling them "foolish mistakes" and urging voters to give him a "second chance."[2]

Cawthorn was homeschooled.[3] A motivational speaker, he is very critical of leftist higher education: "If you are not becoming an engineer or a doctor or a lawyer, I highly encourage you to drop out. It's a scam."[4]

While the Deep State and neocons were unanimously trying in March 2022 to send as many billions of American dollars to Leftist Ukrainian politicians as possible, Cawthorn courageously advocated differently:

“Remember that Zelensky is a thug ... Remember that the Ukrainian government is incredibly corrupt, and it is incredibly evil, and it has been pushing woke ideologies.”

Despite having heavily prepared for and aspired to join the United States Naval Academy,[3] Cawthorn was severely injured and left partially paralyzed from the waist down after a deadly car accident in 2014.[5]

2020 U.S. House election in North Carolina's 11th district

After Rep. Mark Meadows resigned to become the White House Chief of Staff only to prove his ineptitude, several Republicans announced their candidacies to replace him, including Cawthorn as well as Lynda Bennett. After no one won a majority of the vote in the primary[6], a runoff proceeded between Bennett, who finished first place with a plurality of 22.7% of the votes cast, and Cawthorn, who narrowly trailed her in second place. While the former received the endorsements of Donald Trump,[7][8] the Senate Conservatives Fund,[9] and Meadows himself,[10] Cawthorn won the runoff in a landslide upset.[7][8][11] He won the general election in another landslide.

Cawthorn gave a speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention, where he ended by rising out of his wheelchair despite being paralyzed.[12] For this, he was attacked by racist[13] PBS hack Yamiche Alcindor.[14]

Cawthorn has been falsely attacked by his Democrat opponent Moe Davis, who spread a smear based on a tweet that was misconstrued.[15]

In late September 2020, Cawthorn wrote an op-ed on The Daily Wire denouncing the 2020 Leftwing insurrection.[16] His home was later vandalized in mid-October by far-leftists.[17] (See also: Left-wing violence in the Trump era)

Isolated, rare criticism by Conservatives

Despite all this, he has occasionally faced criticism from a few conservatives for taking neoconservative positions and caving to the establishment on several occasions. For example, he once supported keeping Liz Cheney in her position,[18] as well as voting with Democrats and RINOs to pass a red flag gun confiscation bill in September of 2021.[19][20]


During an interview with John Lovell on the Warrior Poet Society podcast, Cawthorn said leaders he looked up to invited him to orgies and also watched them do cocaine.[21] [22]

Aside from that, I mean the sexual perversion that goes on in Washington – I mean it being kind of a young guy in Washington with the average age of probably 60 or 70. And look at all these people, a lot of them that I, you know, I’ve looked up to through my life. I’ve always paid attention to politics guys that, you know, then all of a sudden you get invited to like well, hey, we’re going to have a kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes. You should come there like. What – what did you just ask me to? And then you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy. Or the fact that you know, there’s some of the people that are leading on the movement to try and remove addiction in our country and then you watch them doing, you know, a key bump of cocaine right in front of you. And it’s like wow, this is wild.
